@foucault: thanks for the answer and the hint.

yes, i thought it has something to do with lua.

the interesting thing: not too long ago i reinstalled conky-lua-archers. lua 5.4 was already out. dependencies are lua and lua51.

so if always the newest lua version is taken as reference, i thought that lua51 makes the difference. but it doesn't, because i installed it next to conky-lua-nv.

it must be something else (tolua?).

somehow this fact makes me confused :)

This might actually be related to lua. By default the conky Makefile will pick up the highest version of Lua available on the system. In Arch this is 5.4 but you might want to link against 5.3 to see if that makes any difference. You can do that by cloning the conky repository and removing the lua>=5.3 constraint from cmake/ConkyPlatformChecks.cmake. This will force building against 5.3 (you obviously need to have lua53 installed).

salamander commented on 2021-03-26 16:13 is the theme of my choice, which i have been running under without problems, though being outdated for a longer time.

conky-lua-nv on the other hand is up-to-date, but the display of the rings/values is very sluggish and has long dropouts.

any idea why the theme is not running smoothly?

Thanks, 1.12.1-2 has fixed the issue.

OK so I searched a bit and I think this is related to the implementation of HSV colour gradients. This is fixed in the latest git snapshot. I'll disable HSV gradients for now until a new release is out.

thanks for your investigations. (height),(width) is optional, I specify them with maximum_width, default_graph_height in the conky.config block. conky from the extra repository doesn't encounter this issue.

EDIT: s/default_bar_height/maximum_width/

Removing the colours from diskiograph prevents conky from crashing. However are you sure you're using diskiograph correctly? It seems like the syntax is diskiograph DEVICE WIDTH,HEIGHT COLOUR1 COLOUR2 rather than diskiograph DEVICE COLOUR1 COLOUR2.

It looks like it's dying on diskiograph. The only related issue that I found with this error it's about lua. Initially I assumed that diskiograph is done in Lua, but it's not so linking against different versions wouldn't help.

No lua section in my config. my config :

I'm almost certain this is related to lua. Do you have any lua blocks in you .conkyrc? Can you share your config? Also what version of lua do you have installed (pacman -Qs lua)
